When COVID-19 hit dozens of social services, shelters, and businesses shuttered due to stay at home ordinances leaving many of our unhoused neighbors out on the street with very little hygiene, water, food, sanitation. even worse, with everyone indoors our guests began to feel more isolated, even forgotten, during a time so unprecedented.
In response, our partner lavamae teamed up with multiple partners in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles to go directly to unhoused communities and deliver critical supplies such as facemasks, hygiene items, socks, water, food, and smiling faces.
To date, 5,341 hygiene kits have been delivered to unhoused neighbors, serving between 200-250 people per week.
